Etharkkum Thunindhavan’s ticket office collections at the Indian Ticket Office are as follows:
Week 1 – Rs. 39.50 crores (8 days)
Friday 2 – Rs. 1.50 million kroner
2nd Saturday – Rs. 2.75 million kroner
2nd Sunday – Rs. 3.75 million kroner
Total – Rs. 47.50 million kroner
Almost all of the film’s biz comes from Tamil Nadu now, with Rs. 7-7.25 crores 2nd weekend in the state. The film’s collection rose sharply over the weekend in the state, doubling Saturday from Friday and then Sunday jumping another 40 percent or so. The Sunday gatherings in the state were Rs. 3.40 crores approximately, falling just about 50 percent from its first Sunday, and it is an excellent team for a star film in the South Indian state.
ET was behind after last year’s release Maanaadu in the first week, but in the second week the collection is higher so far. It has crossed Rs. 35 crores in Tamil Nadu, which at one point seemed to be the last biz in the state, but now it is safe to go over Rs. 40 crores and maybe close to Rs. 45 crores if it is able to hold in its third and fourth week.
